Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) slid the most among financial stocks in the week ended October 28. The Swiss lender saw its stock drop 16.7% after it announced its highly-anticipated restructuring plan that had investors wary. The bank also posted a Q3 net loss mostly due to the reassessment of deferred tax assets as a result of its strategic review.

Columbia Financial (NASDAQ:CLBK) fell 12.2% but remained elevated by 3.6% in the past year,

Chinese personal financial services platform Lufax Holding (NYSE:LU), down 12%, dipped after China’s Q3 GDP lagged the government’s full-year target and Xi Jinping secured a third five-year term as head of the Communist Party; and

Banco Bradesco (NYSE:BBD), another Brazilian bank, decreased 10%.

For the winners, OneMain (NYSE:OMF), a consumer finance and insurance company, experienced a 23.6% jump after its Q3 earnings strengthened from net interest income growth;

Flagstar Bancorp (NYSE:FBC) accelerated 21.3% after the lender and New York Community Bancorp (NYSE:NYCB) both received approval from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency for NYCB’s acquisition of FBC;

PennyMac Financial Services (NYSE:PFSI), which specializes in mortgage banking and investment management activities, ascended 20.1% following stronger-than-expected Q3 earnings and revenue;
